696 Actions Economic Share-cropping|Tenantry

There are significant differences between "share-cropping" and "tenant farming" in reality. "Tenants" typically furnished their own farming tools and livestock, and had at least a measure of control over what crops they planted on land they rented from a landlord; "share-croppers" typically only contributed their own labor, with the landlord dictating what they would raise and providing the animals and tools they used. But in his fiction Faulkner does not maintain this distinction, using the terms as essentially synonymous. SR

668 Aesthetics Narrative Temporal projection

When the narrative gets ahead of itself, for example in "Race at Morning" Event 305.1 begins "Then we seen him for the first time," but that does not actually happen until two Events later, 305.3, "and then suddenly . . . the buck hisself" (305). It doesn't matter whether the narrative is looking forward a dozen sentences or a hundred pages, whenever it explicitly anticipates something that it won't actually depict until a later Event, it's "Temporal projection."
